We had such a fun day learning how to play some traditional Irish games. The day consisted of learning and playing 3 different games. Handball, Football, and Hurling. The games are challenging and fun. I would definitely recommend doing this while in Dublin! It's such a cool way to submerse yourself in the Irish culture. Be sure to schedule this... More

One of the best things on our trip. We were taken very good care of, we even got a lift to downtown so we could catch our bus. Thank you!

This was a great time for our family (teenage boys). Brian was an excellent instructor. We learned how to play Gaelic sports and also learned about their importance in the culture. Georgina and Kormick not only provided a great experience but also gave us some other pointers for our trip in Ireland. Would definitely recommend to others!

If you have never been to a hurling match, or if you don't know anything about Irish sports, this is a great way to spend the day. The team is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about all of the sports. It is an educational, fun and physical way to experience this very unique side of Irish culture that you will not... More

This is a great history tour of the games and I just didn't realise upon time out their significance in Irish history

It was a little tough to find, but only because we had bus troubles. We LOVED our afternoon with the team! Had a great time, learned a lot about the culture behind these games, got some exercise, and really enjoyed ourselves. It's great for a break from sight-seeing!

We watched a Dublin game and it was fantastic! The stadium was lovely, pitch was great, people were good and the food prices aren't that bad. Highly recommended to do whilst in Ireland!

Took my 8 year old son to experience Hurling, and while we didn't have much time for Hurling, we loved Gaelic Football. We were accompanied by an American female University rugby team...so that was entertaining considering it was supposed to be a guys day out....and unfortunately they couldn't stay for hurling. The staff is great, and the showed us handball... More
